Select root of whole project in Page Chooser
We are using a 'Page Chooser' in a specific Data Definition set that usually allows us to select a folder (and then a format scans metadata from child pages/etc.). Is there is a way to select the 'Base Folder' or the root ('/') of the whole project? We are using the Sitemaps protocol XML files (to submit to Google, Bing, etc.) and this works great for sub-folders. For Google News we need to have a sitemap.xml file that can scan the whole project starting at the root.
FYI: this Content Type with the Page Chooser in the DD was initially setup by HH professional services during our migration. Should we just use index blocks instead?

It is not currently possible to select a Folder using a chooser, only a Block, Page, File, or Symlink (depending on the type of chooser).
If you need the Base Folder, is there a reason to use a chooser at all? What do you need to build a sitemap of? Every page within the Site, or only a specific Content Type?
If you need all pages, I would suggest using a Folder Index Block that starts at the Base Folder and only includes Pages so you can take advantage of Index Block caching. Additionally, I would suggest only including metadata information (no structured data) to keep the size of the Index Block down.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Ah, you are correct - i had thought that our deeper-level XML Sitemap files
were based off of deeper folders - but they do have their respective index
page selected and then it trickles down from there. Selecting the Base
Folder index page works.

Thank you for following up, Jason, I am glad to hear you were able to re-use your existing setup to accomplish the "whole project" output.
I'm going to go ahead and close this discussion, please feel free to comment or reply to re-open if you have any additional questions.
Have a great day!
